Raw Transmigration Notes ::
In previous Transmigration sessions ( T.of Cinema and T.of the Telepresent/Telematic ), the XLterrestrial positions had not found enough means or footing to turn the corner from picking away at the perceived errors ( technological, social, environmental, etc.). While we warned that making art and documents without praxis regarding sinking ships and building barricades against the lunatic auto-captain schools was not the Act of bailing out, was not the Act of inhabiting new structures, was not the Song or Steps of the new constructive poetics; It was merely another confirmation of social errors and it weighed heavily. It nearly took us under in its current, as it nearly cut us off from any channels to interact, cut us off from the discourse of all other worlds in the freefall with which we could ally ourselves and seek the compassionate and winged teachers.
The “Transmigration of the Avatars” program jumps ahead. Having a certain alien glimpse of the future trajectories where “the future that doesn’t need us” is already a fast-selling commodity disguised perhaps as momentary ( and even rentable ) pause/vacation in the discontinued line of joyful embodiments, we make our own move for a Mock Endgame, a “2dh5″ performance, a calculated lunge to establish our Queen on the checkerboard that does not yet appear in the present. Thereby the XL terrestrials return home without ever having left (or disappeared), that place where all directions are possible again. Or from another perspective: the 3 empty shells of the present are all re-filled, and to each her own – a binary whole, the trickster is a thing in the palm, the bets are all now undefined ~ unquantifiable ~ unowned, and both scarcity and opponent shadows are removed. Technically speaking, humanity wins.
